Have you ever run across a Godfrey Kaucher
born in Berks Co., Pa. in 1774? We are looking
for the names of his parents and any brothers
and sisters he may have had. Godfrey listed on
1800 Berks census, in Centre Co., Pa. in
1803 to 1807. By 1808 in Montgomery Co., Ohio
and 1831 Darke Co., Ohio. Where he died in
1850. Thank you. Sharon

I don't know if this will help: my dads name is Harry Kaucher.He did'nt know his father. His mothers name is Edna Alma Kaucher, born in Missouri on 4-17-1909 and died on 8-2-1999. Her dads name is Theodore Kaucher, from New York, married to Lina Willem from Germany. His dads name is John F. Kaucher born on 2-27-1846,from Russia died on 2-5-1935. He was married to Katherine Dorothy Ruppel also from Russia. She was born on 6-24-1850 and died on 3-2-1911. His parents are Marie Freeling from Germany and Martin Kaucher from Russia. I also have a death certificate for Edna Kaucher and John F. Kaucher if you need copies. Johns is not good though.

My grandfather was a brother to John Frederick Kaucher who came from Russia to New York with his wife and 2 children - my
grandfather John Martin Kaucher came with him. I am interested in talking more with
you. I did not know their parent's names.
How did you get this information. I did find
a sister who went to Brazil. Were there any
more children?

was godfrey son of Frederick & Juliana-brothers and sisters jacob, george,martin, john, mary agnes, carl, elizabeth, and mary catharine?

Do you know anything of Arthur Boyd Cowher married to Carrie McEntire... their son Joseph Montgomery Cowher was my mother, Joline's, grandfather.

There is a listing of Godfrey in my family tree...but it only has him married to Christine Fay then leaves off with his brothers and sisters.
